Tokyo Arts and Space (TOKAS) is an arts center dedicated to the creation and promotion of contemporary artistic expression from Tokyo, and supports a wide spectrum of artistic activities including crossover and experimental projects. Established in 2001 as Tokyo Wonder Site (TWS), an initiative for the support and nurturing of young artists, it was renamed Tokyo Arts and Space in 2017.

With its mission to provide ongoing support for emerging and mid-career artists, promote creative international cultural exchange and offer support for cutting-edge and experimental creative projects, TOKAS is implementing a variety of programs including presenting works by young creators, themed exhibitions, performances and open call contests, as well as operating artist residency programs for international and local creators. With two main venues, TOKAS Hongo, as a facility for presentation of works, and TOKAS Residency, where resident creators can create works, TOKAS provides ongoing support for contemporary creative activities, and will continue to nourish the rich culture of the metropolis of Tokyo.
